MTB mini epic

Filed under: Cycling — admin @ 11:32 pm

So here’s one from the lunatic fringe of Ramsay’s Round recoveries…

Three days after your weekend triumph, you’re tired of sitting ‘recovering’ in front of the computer, think you need some exercise and decide to go for a wee bike ride. So off you go up the stony track to Luibeilt (a wee bike ride, aye right!) but, instead of simply turning round when you get there, you decide it might be fun to take the bike through Glen Nevis (take being a more appropriate word than ride when much of the upper glen is unrideable) and come back by the Lairig Mor. Now of course that’s going to require a lot more effort and you didn’t bring anything to eat or drink but, hey, you’re Superman, you can run West Highland Ways and Ramsay’s Rounds, you do endurance and it’s going to be fun (36 miles of fun to be precise)!

So do I know anyone like that and would I tell you if I did? Dunno, but I can tell you that it was exactly what I needed and it was fun! ;-)
